Here in Surrey  near Wisley its very foggy, roads flooded due to river banks braking. We are ok as we have flood barriers. We have lost 3 fence panels and my fir tree is looking very drunk having been up rooted by the wind!! Shall be putting my wellies on now to clear up the fallen branches. Could be worse-even though there is more to come!

Beautiful morning in Essex.All is calm and the sun is shining. Been for a walk in the park and now going to tackle all the twigs/branches in the garden - work off some of yesterday's excesses...

Variable here. Did some shredding of very wet willow to earn our mulled wine and mince pies. Sun out, then in, then out. Lovely now.

About 5c today & sun shining all day; had a lovely walk but had to keep to a hard surface - the grassy areas are somewhat "soft"

Hi Newboy- I live in Weybridge, Yes RHS gardens is 10mins drive so we are very lucky. Painshill if you know it is resembles a lake! Its got worse-our road has flooded we are taking in turns to pump the water back into river Wey where it belongs. Managed to get this pumping device with massive suction things to suck up the water. Fortunately water only got into 2 houses on my road but the main rd hses have swimming pools instead of lawns.

The teenager-ah well he does best what all teenagers do which is NOTHING!

After all the trouble people are having in other parts I'll not complain, will just say 6C howling wind and chucking it down.

I'm dreaming of a ....   Oh no I'm not.

Quick peek out of window makes me get back in bed and snuggle under the duvet.

Rather grey and cold, but stopped raining.  Still a bit breezy. 

27/12/2013 at 11:15

Grey, windy and raining in Essex this morning such a contrast to yesterday...

NewBoy2- I know that place well, we're near the Brooklands museum. Weather behaving at the moment-grey and spitting  down, a bit windy. Lovely chaps from EA sorting out the drains etc, poor things who'd want their job?

The top Oak tree looks like a womping willow.  very windy here.

Had some sun but it's certainly windy. Supposed to ease this afternoon but it's got worse.

Hi Weyplotter, we have friends who live very near Brooklands, they sent us a video of the (very murky!) river at the end of their road, it had been across the road, but fortunately their bit was fine.  Their problem on Christmas day was getting home from his mother's, as so many roads were closed, they took a huge detour.

Yesterday & today so far have been very calm; the storm's due here soon  & I'm going out tonight.

27/12/2013 at 18:11

Storm started here in Tipperary at 4pm yesterday and caused mayhem last night and this morning. Worst storm in these parts for 15 years. Couldn't get to work this morning as tree down on lane. OH and I cutting our way out at 8.30am, very romantic isn't it. Hope allare ok storm has passed since 4pm today.

What a small world Highland Jennie- your friends could very well be my neighbours! I see you used to live in Teddington-lovely area, now Highlands what a contrast!

Weather wise all settled today although I've not ventured out myself after all the excitement of yesterday.

Oh dear 'No expert' looks like it was a fun day for you today. You've just reminded me of the storm in the eighties and me trying to get to work, trees branches everywhere such devastation.

28/12/2013 at 11:35

Weather is decidedly uninteresting today. Phew.
